Default serpentine belt without power steering?

hi everybody, ive a 2000 GT celica and i've a lot of problem with my power steering pump/pulley im wondering if it is possible to buy a serpentine belt without power steering or if they did all celica with a power steering?

i've seen one without A/C but i cant seem to find one without P/S

Would be very hard and dangerous steering the car without power steering.

AFAIK al Celica trim levels have power steering. You can try to find a shorter belt and try to fit it, but it will cause you far more problems and exposing you to more dangers than the power steering pump and pulley

Are you trying to figure out if its possible that a previous owner disabled the PS, or if you can disable it since its not working? You can buy serpentine belts of nearly any length, so it may be possible to bypass it...but then the steering would be unmanageably heavy. I think it's unlikely anyone did that. PS pumps aren't too expensive, or it may even be a clog in it or something. I'd just get it fixed before driving the car again. Your steering rack may also be the culprit...seals can fail with time causing PS fluid blow-by and reducing pressure, but even the worst steering rack should generate some hydraulic assistance. Usually only a PS pump failure can cause complete loss of power steering. Have you tried changing your PS fluid?

No 7th gen celica came without PS, at least in North America for sure, and probably in all national/regional specs. The alt would be rack and pinion, but that isn't really used anymore on modern production cars and senseless for Toyota to think of implementing.
